In my exclusive interview with her, she shares her Beauty with a Purpose campaign.
“Coming from a family of athletes, I believe that with the advancing technology today, social media has a lot of negative effects most especially on kids. By engaging these children with sports, we can lessen the negative effects of social media as well as help them be strong and disciplined children. With sports, I believe we can help people, kids most especially, champion their better futures.” Oliva shares.
Asked why she joined Miss World Philippines?

“A person who can be a good role model most especially to the youth of today. I have two little sisters and they are my inspirations for how I live my life today. I joined Miss World because I believe that this is a good step into reaching that dream”, Oliva added
